NEW YORK, NY (June 24, 2022) – GRAMMY®-nominated artist, producer and composer THEO CROKER today releases his seventh studio album LOVE QUANTUM, available everywhere now from Star People Nation / Sony Music Masterworks. The album finds Croker making his first-ever foray into the concept of love, as he takes listeners on a journey of self-exploration through storytelling. Featured collaborators Jill Scott, Jamila Woods, Wyclef Jean, Ego Ella May, Teedra Moses, Chris Dave, Gary Bartz, James Tillman and Kassa Overall each imbue the album’s 11 tracks with personal narratives giving testament to love in all its various forms, resulting in a genre-defying discovery of the self and our shared human experience.

 

Of the album, Croker says, “It’s a love story. It’s a tribute to all the different levels of love that can exist – love of a friend, love of a partner, love of a parent, love of yourself and a love of life. It’s really about the journey of love, the experience of it, and how powerful that energy is for us as human beings.”

 

In celebration of today’s album release, Croker has unveiled a new visual for album track “LOVE THYSELF,” his self-love anthem featuring vocals by Teedra Moseswatch here. The video is the latest in a string of visuals released alongside album singles, beginning with introductory track “JAZZ IS DEAD” featuring Gary Bartz and Kassa Overall and followed by “TO BE WE” featuring Jill Scott, “SOMETHIN’” featuring Ego Ella May, and, most recently, “COSMIC INTERCOURSE (Pt. II)” featuring Chris Dave.

ABOUT THEO CROKER

Theo Croker is a storyteller who speaks through his trumpet. A creative who refuses boundaries, the GRAMMY®️-nominated artist, composer, producer, influencer and thought leader projects his singular voice through music. Croker first debuted his simmering original sound in 2014 on the Dee Dee Bridgewater-assisted AfroPhysicist, returning two years later with 2016’s follow-up Escape Velocity, lauded by the Wall Street Journal as “timeless and of-the-moment.” He once again reached new heights with 2019’s Star People Nation, attracting widespread critical acclaim and garnering his first-ever GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Contemporary Instrumental Album.” In addition to his music being featured in television shows (HBO’s Insecure) and films (The Photograph), Croker has also lent his talents to platinum-selling albums by J. Cole, Ari Lennox, Common and more, all while touring with his band at venues across the globe. The year 2020 returned Croker to his childhood home in Florida, where he wrote and recorded his sixth full-length album BLK2LIFE || A FUTURE PAST, a star-studded effort featuring contributions from Wyclef Jean, Ari Lennox, Gary Bartz, Charlotte Dos Santos, Iman Omari, Malaya, and Kassa Overall. Lauded as a “smoldering neo-jazz collection” by The New York Times and “a vital experience” by CLASH, the album yet again propelled Croker to new heights, including his late-night television debut with a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside Wyclef Jean. Croker now starts yet another chapter in his constant evolution as an artist with his seventh studio album LOVE QUANTUM, available now via Star People Nation / Sony Music Masterworks.
